The first poster for Mike Myers‘s The Love Guru has arrived to tickle your funny bone like a jumbo-sized mustache. Except, if you’re like me, you already find yourself thinking about this June release, the schtick involved and the oncoming marketing blitz and your mind turns into an incurable rash. Myers stars as Pitka, an American left in India as a tyke, thus explaining his Rasputin-like appearance, a knee-slappin’ accent, and his horny nature. Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake, Verne Troyer aka Mini Me, Ben Kingsley (Ghandi 2, much?) and hockey co-star! Can we just cast Mini Me in a remake of The Impossible Kid and get it over with? View the full-on kooky-horoscope of a poster and its tagline after the jump…

USA Today published the first photo (seen above) of Mike Myers and Jessica Alba in The Love Guru. I’ve heard from people in the know that this film might have huge potential. However, I’m not sure that I believe that to be true. One thing is for sure, Myers looks very scary in this new get-up.
Official Plot Synopsis: In the comedy, “The Love Guru” (MIKE MYERS), Pitka is an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves back to the U.S. to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke (ROMANY MALCO) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke’s wife starts dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE) out of revenge, sending her husband into a major professional skid â€“ to the horror of the teams’ owner Jane Bullard (JESSICA ALBA) and Coach Cherkov (VERNE TROYER). Pitka must return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the team can break the 40-year-old “Bullard Curse” and win the Stanley Cup.
I’m not a huge Austin Powers fan. I know, I’m in the minority. But the one character I always got a huge kick out of was Dr. Evil. He was a perfect parody of all the great super-villains of all time. In my opinion, he was the reason why the Austin Powers trilogy was so successful. Now word comes in from our friends at FirstShowing that a fourth Austin Powers may be in the works, and it may focus completely on Dr. Evil!
“There is one that we have an idea about. The only thing I will say is that it’s entirely from Dr. Evil’s point of view. It would be the first of his trilogy,” revealed star Mike Myers. “That was a joke. I just love the bluster of saying that it’s a trilogy. Yes, it’s a twenty-five part series. No it’s not. I’m just joking.”
It doesn’t sound like anything is greenlit, but I’m sure New Line would jump at the opportunity for another Austin Powers film. Think of the possibilities that could be made by showing a movie from Dr. Evil’s point of view. Endless laughs.

I must admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Shrek films. I saw the second one when I was overtired and laughed so hard I almost lost my voice. I later watched the film again and didn’t laugh once. Anyway, Summer 2007 is going to be Sequel-mania, and Shrek 3 is part of that. The trailer for Shrek the Third can be found right after the jump.
